Reasons why materiality is important for our business

When conducting its business in close cooperation with local communities, the Daigas Group can grow along with the communities by fulfilling its responsibility such as paying local taxes and contributing to local communities in various fields. Doing so will lead to a favorable cycle that brings the development of local communities.

Responsibilities

The “CSR Committee” has set up a “Social Contributions Subcommittee” to deliberate and report on multidisciplinary social contribution activities within the Group. The meetings of the Subcommittee were convened three times in FY2018.

In the Regional Co-Creation Division, we have set up company-wide activity planning, with each individual business operation taking advantage of the local network it built in the communities to move forward with activities in its area.

Performance

In FY2018, all major business offices undertook activities tailored to local stakeholders' characteristics. We promoted communication-enhancement activities to deepen the public's understanding of business projects run by the Daigas Group. In addition, we filed proposals aimed at building resilient cities and communities while developing programs for making regional communities attractive by adding new value.

Specific actions taken regarding materiality

The Daigas Group strives to develop sustainable regional communities by vitalizing them through the use of Group assets, promoting a Small Light Campaign led by employees of the Group, and stepping up collaboration with nonprofit organizations. By doing so, the Group aims to create new value (regional co-creation) in each local community.

Education of Youth

For the education of young people, who are to play key roles in the next generation, we are undertaking activities aimed at promoting energy and environmental education, food education, and disaster-prevention and fire education. Our energy and environmental education programs started in 2006, followed by other educational programs—food education, and disaster-prevention and fire education. To promote food education, we have compiled a “Food Education Book” and distributed copies to elementary schools. In FY2018, we started a new seminar promoting soup stock for Japanese food, enabling participants to taste such soup stock. Our fire education seminar provided an opportunity for participants to experience fire building to familiarize them with “fire,” and to help them learn about “fire.”

In our disaster-prevention education that started in 2014, we have compiled an original anti-disaster booklet developed as education material, titled “Thinking about disaster prevention class,” and distributed its copies to local elementary schools and other facilities.

Contribution to developing and building stable, high-quality and resilient cities and communities

The Daigas Group has been collaborating with municipal governments in building resilient cities and communities while taking advantage of the Group's strong points. Specifically, we have disseminated information regarding energy policies and disaster-prevention plans formulated by municipalities while putting forward our own proposals on these issues.

Publicize the attractive points of regional culture and history, and contribute to revitalizing regions

We are utilizing the Daigas Group's business infrastructure to make the culture and history of the Kansai region more attractive, and to cooperate with local governments and communities as well as NPOs, social designers and others in revitalizing communities.
